Well after going 2 1/2 years without real vision insurance my husbands company has changed from their Vision discount plan to actual insurance. I haven’t had my vision checked or contacts/glass changed since my husband’s company changed to the discount plan because kids always came first and we went from paying 25.00/ea copay which included the exam & contacts/glasses, to paying 150.00/ea OR MORE depending on what style + the 40.00 for the exam. I was totally pissed when this first happened…I hate it when companies make insurance changes that aren’t in the employees best interest. They must have gotten lots of complaints because they’ve changed back and I’m making my eye appointment….woohoo! I’m actually thinking of looking into Lasik surgery, this new insurance covers it….so maybe.
Then there is the down side of course….our medical insurance went up by 60.00 per month. Oh well…Have I said that I hate insurance companies?
